This is a rare opportunity to purchase a unique two storey shop and caretaker's residence.
Prominently situated on the corner of Thistle and Richmond Streets, Gordon Park, this beautiful character building has high visibility to both passing pedestrian and vehicular traffic, and is on the number 375 Bus path. It has recently been renovated, both inside and out to a high standard.
The shop takes up the complete lower storey. It is comprised of a lower shop floor with entry from the front corner, while a side entry provides wheelchair and pram accessibility via the deck to an alternate entry to the upper shop floor and serving counter. A unisex disability accessible toilet is also provided off the deck for easy access and the comfort of customers. The shop kitchen (with walk-in-pantry) is adjacent to the servery and provides staff with rear access to a carport yard that could accommodate up to four vehicles. There is also a storeroom off the servery area and internal stair access to an office and residence.
Situated on the level above, the caretaker's residence is self-contained with its own kitchen, bathroom including laundry facilities, bedroom, and open plan living area. There is also a large office that provides a spacious area for administrative purposes.
The property's features include an iconic corner awning with ample signage potential, as well as large and prominent shop front windows, and a usable deck to provide outdoor seating for shop activities without the need to apply for footpath permits.
Fully renovated, the building has all new plumbing and wiring, three phase power supply, a new roof, new fencing and gates on street frontages, stainless steel shop kitchen and servery fit-out, good natural lighting as well as energy efficient fixtures installed. Daikin reverse cycle inverter split system air-conditioning has been installed to the office, residence, lower shop, upper shop, servery, and shop kitchen, while fans service the outdoor deck. Data cabling and outlets, security system including cameras and DVR, and a Sonos sound system have also been installed.
Character buildings of this caliber are hard to come by, particularly ones that present this type of potential for commercial usability, so act quickly to submit your offer to purchase before the 30th October deadline.
